The Newton County School System announced a day for parents and community members to come together to participate in education workshops aimed at increasing student success in the classroom.
The Spring Education Summit, hosted by NCSS Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey, is on Saturday, April 19 at Newton High School, located at 1 Ram Way in Covington, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Admission is free.
Parents, business and community leaders and NCSS stakeholders are invited to the public event.
“A key indicator of student success is parent involvement, so we hope to see a large turnout of parents,” Fuhrey said.
Informative workshops on a variety of subjects are scheduled, such as “De-stressing Your Teen,” “Money for College-ACT vs. SAT,” “Get Connected- Using Web-Based Learning Tools,” “Is Your Child Gifted? Learn About the Gifted Program,” “If You Can’t Find a Way…Make a Way!” and “School Safety.”
“This is a special opportunity to learn more about the school system, share ideas and also receive helpful tips for parents to help their students be more successful in school,” Fuhrey said.
Fuhrey said it is important that students understand how much parents and community members value education.
